    1. I was really excited to read Stephen Mansfield's new book, Mansfield's Book of Manly Men. As a proponent of someone calling men back to their roles as leaders, I anticipated reading a really good book about this subject. Mansfield does not disappoint. What a fantastic book!Mansfield's Book of Manly Men is a great way to encourage and uplift men to live like men. But this book is no primer of misogyny or feminist bashing. No, Mansfield calls men to what he calls the 4 Manly Maxims. There is a cri [...]


    2. When I requested Mansfield’s Book of Manly Men from BookLook Bloggers (thanks for the complimentary copy!), I thought it was a book of biographical sketches written by Mr. Mansfield about inspiring, manly figures from history. Instead, it turned out to be a ‘Guide to Being Your Most Masculine Self’.Oh, dear. That sounds like exactly what I need – to be more masculine. My mom already calls me the “son” of the family – she says that God sent me to her so that she could see what it wo [...]


    3. 3.5 Disclaimer: I did not know this was a Christian book when I bought it. Not that it should matter to meBut anyway, I liked this. Especially the Winston Churchill chapter. Chapters about other historical figures were interesting to read. There are several quotes that I should have marked throughout the book, so I will be reading it again. Also, the Prayer of Sir Francis Drake was thrown in as a break between chapters and it is probably the best thing I have ever read IN MY LIFE. So, there's th [...]


    4. Още една книга за мъжествеността, този път дооооста добра. Авторът е генерал от армията, успешен бизнесмен, глава на семейство и pilar of the community, отгоре на всичко и лектор по въпроса на това какво е да си мъж. По-квалифициран от това да дава акъл по въпроса - здраве му кажи.Стивън [...]


    5. This is an excellent book that outlines character traits of true manhood. I enjoyed the inspirational aspect of this book, and I think the word 'invigorating' in the subtitle is appropriate.Each manly trait contains the portrait of a man that embodies that trait, a stirring quote, and often a poem. I love the fact that poems were included throughout the book. There are not many things that can stir your heart and soul more than a moving poem.At the end of the book, there are a number of 'manly' [...]


    6. I used this book as as outside-reading assignment for my son and the Christian Manhood Class that I taught in our Christian school. Every man should read this book. Every young man should read this book. Every mother of a man should read this book. Stephen Mansfield uses mostly everyday manly examples from living men and manly men of the past. Though he uses some Scripture and though this book is based on manly biblical principles, Mansfield writes this book through illustrations that men can re [...]


    7. Yes, I read a manly book, which was a required category (a book written for the opposite gender) for the Tim Challies reading challenge I've been doing this year. I enjoyed it a lot. It was packed full of valiant mini biographies of great men of faith. I found many truths that will be helpful in training up my own son. Stephen Manfield is an amazing author and his other biographies, God & Guinness, and Lincoln's Battle w God, are well worth your time as well.



    8. The old cliche of "don't judge a book by it's cover" can be applied to this book for sure. When you first look at the cover, what vision of "manly men" pops into you head? Some sort of physical definition like wrestling bears, or hunting, or chopping down trees on a mountainside, or pressing massive barbells above your head one handed? Men with lots of hair on their chest? If that's what you pictured, then the cover did it's job. It's meant to be a little snarky, a little tongue in cheek. But, t [...]


    9. As an ambitious 18-year-old male, this book was fantastic for me. Mansfield does an excellent job identifying "manly" traits and elaborating his argument with historical accounts of manly men (e.g. Lincoln, Churchill, Job). While some of the masculine characteristics he suggests are not convincing (wildness, humour), many traits he identified are, in my opinion, extremely relevant to many modern men out there.This book much inspired me and will continue to do so through 2018. I plan to read this [...]


    10. A good book on masculinity. There are no wasted words and sometimes I felt a bit surprised with the author's abruptness. But, I think this is what makes the book helpful; it makes men like me to think and act as men. I have some few issues with his biblical references but I think the author did not intend to make the book a biblical meditation on manhood. I believe he is writing for a wider audience and only explains his faith as an influence in the things he believes constitute a man. I like th [...]



    11. Inspiring written work for the male reader. In an era where masculinity is lacking, this book helps remind men that masculinity is not a bad thing, and should be embraced.





    12. Just started this book and love it so far (even though I'm a woman and this is written for men) a great read for husbands or the men in our life, filled with stories of the great men through the ages (or average, everyday men, who have become great with the help of Jesus Christ).This book is divided into three parts. In the first part, Mansfield defines manhood with 4 "Manly Maxims". 1) Action. "Manly men do manly things." 2) "Manly men tend their fields." 3) "Manly men build manly men." 4) Manl [...]


    13. The contents opens with a classic picture of an old-fashioned Sherlock-style pipe. If that doesn’t bring forth older images of manliness, other than the enlarged mustache on the cover, I am not sure what will. But does the rest of the book live up to the hype and expectations?The Publisher calls the book “witty,” ”compelling,” and “shrewd,” citing it as being “about resurrecting your inborn, timeless, essential, masculine self.” The book has been receiving an average of 4.5 sta [...]


    14. This book is great. Mansfield doesn't beat around the bush. Instead he gets right in there and tells you what you need to know. He is not afraid of being politically incorrect, and in today's society it is very refreshing.An absolute must read for anyone looking to become the man God wants him to be.


    15. “My goal in this book is simple. I want to identify what a genuine man does—the virtues, the habits, the disciplines, the duties, the actions of true manhood—and then call men to do it.” - Stephen MansfieldMansfield’s Book of Manly Men by Stephen Mansfield, with a foreword by Lt. Gen. William G. BoykinMansfield’s Book of Manly Men is a sort of manly guidance book for men and boys of all ages. Stephen Mansfield examines manliness from a Biblical perspective, and finds that our current [...]


    16. While early on, Mansfield states that this “Utterly Invigorating Guide to Being Your Most Masculine Self” is not for girls, I found it to be a wonderful, and very enjoyable, book.Mansfield begins by giving four maxims for true masculinity, or what he refers to as being a “manly man”, and then moves to an intriguing review of some of the qualities of a godly, masculine man, ranging from honor, humility, self-education, and vision.While not a man, I found Mansfield’s Book of Manly Men to [...]


    17. While this wouldn't be my go-to guide for defining Biblical masculinity, this is a really fun book. Starting from the premise that manhood is action, he offers four maxims that define manhood, and assembles a long list of manly virtues illustrated by the life manly man from history (incl.Teddy Roosevelt, WinstonChurchill, Abe Lincoln, and Booker Washington). This is the 2nd book I've read by Mansfield, and I really enjoy his writing. As an added bonus, the manly icons through the pages as well a [...]


    18. Mansfield's Book of Man Men is an absolute 'must read' for men at any stage of life. As a youth leader, I have found my new go-to gift for the young men in our church with a note attached to make sure they pass it on to their dads once they've finished it!The 4 maxims are well covered by other reviews. Additionally, Mansfield breaks down several qualities of what it means to be the kind of men we are called to be. These chapters touch on such things as integrity, friendship, honor, adventure, et [...]


    19. Summarily Discredits the Modern Portrayal of ManhoodI'm not very liberal with five star ratings but this one is worthy.I learn best by example and by doing. For each virtue Stephen covers, he draws from the well of history and tells the story of a notable man who exemplified it. Then he challenges each of us to get outside of the realm of discussion and take specific action to improve our own manhood.This book is iron sharpening iron in its finest sense across the generations of men from Biblica [...]


    20. A little predictable in the sense of using several military characters, Mansfield offers some significant insights into otherwise often unknown nor misunderstood men. His plea for men to take responsibility for their territory is worth the price of the book.Following 4 maxims for men, there are numerous character studies that provide insight into what it means to be a man with the character needed for our day and age. While not overtly Christian, it's abundantly clear that Bibilical values under [...]


    21. Great read on being a manly man of God.Mansfield's Book of Manley Men is in my top three books of being a manly man. The first and second are the Bible and Wild at Heart. This book gives thought provoking questions to help you become a Manly Man. It also has encouraged me to read more books on great men of our past and re-rekindled my love for history especially that of our founding fathers. A must read for those wanting to be a better man, raising manly sons and impacting the world around you.


    22. A solid book that helps guide men to "being your most masculine self". The four "manly maxims" that Mansfields proposes are as follows: Manly men do manly things.Manly men tend their fields.Manly men build manly men.Manly men live to the glory of God.I wish Mansfield would have fleshed these maxims out a little more, but I agree with the premise of each maxim. Overall, the book is a good read and if you're looking for a simple book on masculinity this book is for you.


    23. My favorite book that I have read this year. Not only has this been transformative for my own personal view of manhood. It has helped me teach other men how to apply the topics contained in these pages to their lives. It is incredibly challenging and practical. No matter what spiritual background you may come from this will challenge your worldview on what it means to be a man. Every man should pick up and read this book. Especially for fathers to read to their sons!


    24. My men's group just got done reading this book. Some very interesting stories about famous and not so famous men that I didn't know. Wasn't tied together well. Three sections with no connection between them. Enjoyed the second section the most. Questions at the end of each section weren't really discussion starters for our group. Nothing memorable that I will take away from the book.


    25. I really enjoyed this book. Mansfield has a style that draws the reader along. His approach to defining manhood by what a man does and then giving examples of manly character traits through the stories of men who embodied those traits is an entertaining and refreshing way to impart or invigorate manly character in the reader.
